3 tactics to drive more traffic to your site
May 15, 2015
You'd be surprised how effective these 3 tactics are to getting your site MORE traffic
You're busy. I'm busy. My family growing potatoes in Russia is busy.
Sometimes we're so busy that we miss out on tips that will dramatically improve our lives. So listen up ...
Here are 3 things you should do with your site RIGHT NOW to start getting more traffic:
1. Make it easy for your mobile visitors to share the love
You'd be surprised how much of your traffic comes from mobile visitors.
We were amazed to see that 30% of the traffic we get on AppSumo is on mobile:
When I'm on my phone, I share articles and sites by texting, WhatsApp'ing, or emailing my friends/family.
With Share by SumoMe, you can make it DEAD simple for your readers to share your stuff by text, WhatsApp, or email.
Here's how it looks:
Lesson: You work hard on your content. Make it easy for your mobile visitors to share that content and drive you more traffic.
2. Find out where your traffic is really coming from
One of the most-powerful features of Share is UTM tracking. Sounds complicated, but it isn't. Basically, UTM tracking tells you where your traffic is coming from (either Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc.)
With UTM tracking, you can see where your Share traffic is coming from:
By knowing exactly where your traffic is coming from, you can hide the social networks from Share that aren't driving you significant traffic (for us that's Google Plus).
Lesson: By knowing where your traffic is really coming from, you can optimize for that channel to get MORE of that sweet traffic.

3. Try new things to see what works best
Each day, people go to your website. However, a ton of these people leave without ever coming back (or ever giving you their business).
With List Builder, you can turn those visitors into lifelong customers.
Many of you use the basic List Builder template without even changing the text.
You'd be surprised how even small changes can completely affect your conversion rate.
We've even tested pretty List Builder templates alongside uglier-looking ones and the uglier ones performed significantly better!
Really, it all comes down to your audience. You may think you know what they like, but you never really know unless you try out different templates/messaging.
Lesson: Small changes can bring big results. However, you'll never know unless you try out those changes.
How do I get started with all of this?
To start using UTM tracking with Share, you'll need to use Share Pro and activate it in the "Pro" tab. And to get premium templates for List Builder, you'll need to use List Builder Pro.
This has never been available before (I made the Sumos work late last night to make this happen), but because I want all of you to be doing these 3 things with your site now ...
You can try out Share Pro ($20/month), List Builder Pro ($20/month), or SumoMe Pro ($100/month) for free for one whole month (cancel at anytime!)
Here's how to try it out now:
